THE BUDDY ZONE He loves ya, as a friend. If you want someone to trim your bangs he's your guy, but passion isn't his forte.

THE BRAINY ZONE You have a meeting of the cerebral cortex and he might even be your work husband, but if you're looking for a real husband things don't add up.

THE BOOTY ZONE For sheer pheromones nothing beats the heat with your manimal. When the ride's over however, he'll move on to the next fox.

THE BONDING ZONE You've found true affection and understanding, someone who loves you, quirks and all. Try not to flaunt it too much.
